SUCCESS TIP: Gets lots of sleep and eat a healthy meal beforehand.

It's true, getting a lot of sleep the night before you take a test will help you do better. And, making sure you have a good healthy meal will help too. No one functions well when they're tired and hungry.

We subscribe to the National College Testing Association (NCTA) Professional Standards and Guidelines and are committed to maintain the highest compliance with nationally recognized professional testing standards and practices.
